With the increasing human impact on the planet and ever tightening regulations from governments, there’s a clear need for more effective emission control solutions.
The science is clear: If we don’t drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the next decade, the warming will spiral out of control and damage will be “irreversible.”
And with forecasts telling our output of fossil fuels will only keep growing — to some 20 million barrels a day in 2025 in the US alone — there’s much reason for being concerned. (Read More)
